Going away
How much more fun is it to go away?

Yesterday was my first for a few years - took sarge jr. Was in the neutral bit but that was nearly all us and everything was so positive.

Non stop singing.
A much more varied play list
None of the hand clapping bollocks that seems to be our favourite at home
Being 30 rows back be still really close to the pitch

Got Southampton tickets in the ballot. Can't wait

Enjoyed the away games when we were playing in the Championship last time.

Re: Going away
Tuesday nights in the pissing rain and freezing cold in shitholes like Burnley and Coventry are what make a football fan.

Re: Going away
It’s always lots of fun going away, especially when on an unbeaten run and when feeling invincible. However, it’s less so when on a losing streak or when being thrashed 5-0 on a cold Wednesday night in January up at Newcastle.

The past couple of seasons have been problematic with regard to the ‘points’ system, especially now with reduced away prices and more season ticket holders wanting to go away, but I still manage to go to about 3/4’s of the away games. I had to miss Fulham at the weekend because of this, but I have tickets for Southampton and Burnley during Christmas week, so all is well.

No one used to sit in the home end either where I was.... that was the BML and the CR... don't know what the Cesspit is like now for standing /Non standing... and to be honest I'm not fussed

Americans arrive to watch their children play with armchairs, coolers and other massive quantities of shit. I tried sitting once (not in an armchair) and it was impossible.

No-one sits in the away end.

`All were brilliant fun......persistant standing. haha`.

I don't think I ever sat down in the vast... vast majority of the games either at Upton Park or away.... football ain't for sitting

Re: Going away
I've not been away this season as I can't afford to at the moment, but next season I'll have more capacity and I may try my luck with an away season ticket.

Re: Going away
I'm 51,going away years ago always had an edge to it being West Ham.
Myself and a good few from Ronford/Dagenham travelled to loads of away games which started when we were 13/14sh (home games early secondary school 11 year olds )gave us a huge sence of pride knowing we were untouchable. Had a half tidy side at times too back then.
The games changed beyond Recognition to the old days that have long gone. Our support remains as good as there is regardless of at times perilous league status.
I've always admired us lots ability to take the piss out of ourselves a bit which sets apart.
West Ham are my team and my kids and thier forefathers I wouldn't have it any other way.

Re: Going away
Don’t go to many, but far better than home games, especially at the Cess-hole

Was a very good away day yesterday despite the conditions. Noisy support and everyone up for it and in a positive mood.

Re: Going away

When I saw the 'Going Away' title. I opened it expecting to hear tales of capture and impending porridge

But on the matter in hand, yes, cant beat it, rather go away than home

Re: Going away
I'm right with you Sarge... I get to one or two away games a year.
With club membership it nigh impossible to get a London away game so made do with brilliant away days at Newcastle (4,500) Sunderland, Aston Villa, Liverpool, Wigan, Burnley and Portsmouth to name a few.

Hope you have a great day on the south coast mate!
